My daughter just turned 2 and somedays she's fun and well behaved and somedays it doesn't matter how i word things to sound fun and nice or how loud i say things nie or not so nice it seems she turns off her ears and in fact does the opposite of what i'm asking and seems to enjoy ticking me off

  • I've come to the conclusion that the "2's" are a small fore-taste of the "teens".

    She's just figuring out where her independence starts and just how much authority you have. Another issue is that toddlers have a hard time with noise discrimination... just what should she listen and pay attention to? You? The TV? The Radio? The wonderful, exciting sounds coming from outside? The toy she is playing? We don't have a hard time switching our brains from one sound to another based on importance at that moment but it is a learned skill and toddlers can't do it yet.

  • 2-----3----4-----5----6----
    they turn their ears off at those ages to and even higher..
    I have a 4 1/2 year old and I have to repeat...repeat....repeat...everything.
    It is hard at times....but stay consistant....

  • Glad to know I'm not the only one, lol! My daughter is 14 months and she's excellent at ignoring you, and she's smiling while she does it so you know that she understands... lol
